Hi folks , a bit abt myself; I had a mitral valve replacement 5 year ago and my INR level is 3-3.5, which i have to say i can count on the one hand how many times its been on target ! I go for blood tests 2-3 times a week at the hospital as the nurses at my practise have been having problems getting blood due to my veins being fibrosed ! Since last sunday i have been having pain in my chest, fever, tight feeling (like someone is squeezing me ), anyway i was taken by ambulance to the hospital where they DIDNT do blood tests etc but they did send me home, next day i was getn my usual inr and it was 14.9, they gave me 2 caps of vit k and i have been every day sice , very tiring ! does anyone else have this problem ?? mine is either too high or 2 low, for most of last year its been between 0.9-2.1 and i take 10mg warfarin. regards nina x
